Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet Species Profile
Traits:  The most popular and widely kept of the Psittacula species, the Indian ring-necked parakeet is not known for its affectionate manner. Indian ring-necked parakeets can make excellent companions if owners handle, interact, play and talk to them daily. .

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Indian ring-necked parakeets can develop social phobias with regular interaction and handling. Indian ring-necked parakeets enjoy chewing, so provide soft wood toys. Generally not picky eaters, provide an Indian ring-necked parakeet a varied diet with plenty of fruit, vegetables, green and whole grains. Males have a more distinct rose collar and facial markings than the females. They have a narrow black stripe on the mandible under the throat and a black lower mandible. Female Indian ringnecks do not have the colorful neck rings or facial markings found on adult males. Female also tend to be more dominant than males.
